On May 25th, 2018, the European Union’s (EU) new data protection framework, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), will come into effect. It is the most significant piece of data protection legislation to date and will impact any organization that processes personal data in connection with goods/services offered to an EU resident or monitors the behavior of persons within the EU. The GDPR strengthens individuals’ privacy rights through tighter limits processing of their personal data, significantly expanding their rights over their data, and providing increased transparency into the nature, purpose, and use of it.
As a regulation instead of a directive, the GDPR becomes enforceable as law in all EU member states simultaneously on this date and replaces the separate member state implementations of data protection law, streamlining compliance by providing a single set of principles to follow.
The scope of this new regulation encompasses all organizations that process the personal data of EU residents or monitor individuals’ behaviors conducted within the EU, regardless of the entity’s location. The terms processing and personal data are defined broadly: processing involves “any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data” and personal data means “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’).” The GDPR outlines different requirements for Controllers (entities who determine the purposes and means of the processing of personal data) and Processors (entities who process personal data as directed by a Controller).
